A VOICE FROM THE PAST: STEVEN THRASHER, “WHITE AMERICA HAS LOST ITS MIND”

Posted in STEVE THRASHER, THE MEDITATORS with tags , , , , , on 25/02/2015 by Majordomo Pain

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Originally published in the Village Voice on 29 September 2010 noted journalist author and radio personality Steven Thrasher makes clear what the election of President Obama has done to the white conservative mind.

About 12:01 on the afternoon of January 20, 2009, the white American mind began to unravel.

It had been a pretty good run up to that point. The brains of white folks had been humming along cogently for near on 400 years on this continent, with little sign that any serious trouble was brewing. White people, after all, had managed to invent a spiffy new form of self-government so that all white men (and, eventually, women) could have a say in how white people were taxed and governed. White minds had also nearly universally occupied just about every branch of that government and, for more than two centuries, had kept sole possession of the leadership of its executive branch (whose parsonage, after all, is called the White House).

But when that streak was broken—and, for the first time, a non-white president accepted the oath of office—white America rapidly began to lose its grip.

As with other forms of dementia, the signs weren’t obvious at first. After the 2008 election, when former House majority leader Tom DeLay suggested that instead of a formal inauguration, Barack Obama should “have a nice little chicken dinner, and we’ll save the $125 million,” black folks didn’t miss the implication. References to chicken, particularly of the fried variety, have long served as a kind of code when white folks referred to black people and their gustatory preferences—and weren’t many of us already accustomed to older white politicians making such gaffes? But who among us sensed that it was a harbinger that an entire nation was plunging into madness?

Who didn’t chuckle, after all, the first time they heard that white people had doubts that Barack Obama had even been born in the United States and was therefore ineligible to be president? It sounded like one of those Internet stories in which some (usually white) writer does his best to prove something everyone knows to be true is actually the exact opposite. And you go along with it for a few paragraphs to see how long the writer can convince you that what you know is right is actually wrong.

Seemed like that, didn’t it? After all, what was the beef? Obama’s father was Kenyan, and the kid was born in Hawaii—which is barely a part of the United States to begin with (only a state in 1959!). His mother was white, and after the Kenyan guy left, she married an Indonesian guy, so little Barack lived in Jakarta for a while before coming back to Hawaii to be brought up largely by his white grandparents. . . . And that’s it? Come on, this was after-school-special material, the kind of thing that brings a tear to your eye because little half-Kenyan/half-white Barry made good, not the stuff of conspiracy novels.

But the more you shook your head at it, the more it seemed to have taken root deep in the lizard part of the white nervous system. Obama is not an American. He says he’s Christian, but he has a Muslim-sounding name. He’s not black, he’s not white. . . . Is . . . is he even human?

Today, Newsweek has found, nearly a quarter of Americans believe that Obama is a Muslim, with barely 42 percent of the nation accepting his claim that he’s a Christian. CNN finds that a quarter of Americans also believe that Obama was “probably or definitely” born in another country.

Harris found in an online poll that 14 percent of Americans believe in their hearts that President Barack Obama is the antichrist, with nearly a quarter of Republicans saying so.

At least in this form, however, Satan (sometimes) wears a flag pin.

What was going on? Had decades of sucking down so much high-fructose corn syrup not only made Americans incredibly obese, but also messed with white brain chemistry to the point that some sort of tipping point had occurred?

Not a bad theory, but no, there’s a simpler explanation, with two parts: For the first time in their lives, baby boomers are hard up against it economically, and white boy is becoming outnumbered and it’s got his bowels chilled with fear.

“In an age of diminished resources, the United States may be heading for an intensifying confrontation between the gray and the brown,” writes Ronald Brownstein in his July National Journal article, “The Gray and the Brown: The Generational Mismatch.” That’s a polite and understated way of saying that older white folks are losing their shit as they’re being replaced by young brown and black kids while the economy is in the crapper.

Brownstein notes that 40 percent of the nation’s population under 18 is already non-white, with that number significantly higher in the Southwest (read: Mexicans!). By 2023, that number of young non-whites will be an outright national majority.

At the same time, the baby boomers are getting older. At 80 percent white, boomers have gotten pretty used to dominating nearly every field of endeavor in this country since they came of age—politics, business, education, the arts—just about everything but MTV programming. Boomers set the national agenda in so many ways that we can forget how much the national economy and national media cater to them. Bewildered by the number of Cialis ads you see on television showing those flabby couples sitting in bathtubs? Or the way that older women are suddenly “cougars” and “MILFs” and . . . oh, yeah, you remember, boomers are getting old, but still want to think they can get the sheets sweaty. See? Boomers and their fixations and fears explain nearly everything. . . .

THE 9TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DIS BRIMSTONE DAILY PITCHFORK

Even here in Hell, people wonder just where the time goes. On 27 August 2005, Pain made the very first post for the digital version of Hell’s leading daily newspaper beginning and odyssey from Blogger to WordPress that finds me here writing today. members of the writing staff and research staff have come and gone. Some, like Diane Valencen have gone and returned.

The very first story we covered was Hurricane Katrina. We asked the same questions about the response and the government’s failure to protect the citizens of New Orleans that everyone else did. As time went on we covered many major stories in the United States especially the Culture Wars. The first story that got us noticed in the wider blogoshpere was the May 2006 murder of Tiffany Souers in Clemson, South Carolina. Her killer, Jerry Buck Inman was arrested in early June and put Robin Naismith Green’s crime reporting front and center.

More stories broke as our political writing moved forward with the full time hiring of Culture Wars reporter Sarah Bloch. The 2006 midterm elections were another step toward Internet success for our staff. A signature piece I wrote during the Blogger days was about Congressman Mark Foley who resigned under a cloud of scandal surrounding House pages.

Following that historic election was another high time for politics in the United States. Both Senator Hillary Clinton and then Senator Barack Obama were running for the nomination of the Democratic Party for President in 2008. I recall the staff meeting the morning of Super Tuesday 2008 when Cavalor Epthith said, “If Obama comes close to being the winner today, he will be President of the United States.” On that long day Obama won more states and delegates but Hillary got more votes. In a midnight editorial The Boss endorsed Barack Obama officially after months of fence sitting.

Then came the economic collapse of 2008 in the late summer. Carlton Pryor, long before the rant of Rick Santelli on CNBC, warned about the dangers of too big to fail, ninja loans and the subprime synthetic derivative housing market. We fought the conservative lies about the cause of the crisis, which of course was a mixture of Wall Street greed and Main Street greed, but was crystallized in a Manhattan Institute piece saying the Community Reinvestment Act caused the crisis. This was the lie and it took years to die.

hindsight 2333
In Hindsight

The biggest story by far was the Boston Marathon bombing last year and we broke the name of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev seven minutes before NBC News making it the highest traffic days ever. Oh yeah we presented beauty in the form of nude Human beings from time to time as well. This got a bit out of hand on what we called Porn Sunday while at Blogger and they summarily in June 2010 deleted our blog. Cavalor debated for a few days if we should migrate to another format and we settled on WordPress four years ago. I am still eager, everyday for the next big story from Terra and hopefully it will be my pleasure to bring you the opinions of those in hell on what really matters to the Living for many years to come. And, of course, Jim Hoft is still the stupidest man on the Internet.

BREAKING NEWS: UTAH ATTORNEYS GENERAL JOHN SWALLOW AND MARK SHURTLEFF ARRESTED BOTH GOP POLITICIANS HAVE CLOSE TIES TO MITT ROMNEY

Posted in BREAKING NEWS with tags , , , , on 15/07/2014 by sarahbloch

sarah_bloch_9

UPDATE:::: 12h 20m HST:::: A full list of the charges.

The Salt Lake City Tribune is reporting breaking news that former Utah Attorney General John Swallow who was a delegate at the 2012 Republican National Convention supporting Mitt Romney and former Attorney General Mark Shurtleff have both been arrested as a result of a criminal bribery probe by the FBI. Swallow resigned after less than a year in office after a series of investigations by state and federal officials into bribery. Shurtleff, who served as Utah AG from 2001 and 2013 has been accused of taking considerations to affect his prosecutorial decisions.

Swallow posted on his website prior to becoming Utah Attorney General a statement of support for GOP candidate Mitt Romney:

We need to make Barack Obama a one-term President, which is why I endorse Mitt Romney for President of the United States. I appreciate the chance to be a National Delegate and one of six Electors for our state this year, and I pledge my vote to Mitt Romney. I supported Mitt four years ago, and I will support him again. Mitt is the qualified leader who is ready to stand toe-to-toe against Obama in November and win. We need a strong Republican in the White House who has an understanding of Utah’s need and right to reclaim our public lands, create more jobs and better-fund education. Mitt and I see eye-to-eye on several issues – most importantly that we must defeat Obamacare and return power to the states. As a former governor, he knows the importance of state sovereignty. With Mitt Romney in the White House and a proven conservative in the Utah Attorney General’s Office, Utah stands a fighting chance to reclaim our lands. It will take a strong partnership between Utah and D.C to correct the lengthy history of violations of our state sovereignty, especially regarding access to our land. As you are well aware, the Obama administration has actively pursued an agenda that has sought to strip Utahns of their voice and freedoms. They prefer having someone in Washington dictate land policies and mandate the purchase of health insurance in a one-size-fits-all government. Their actions are not only unconstitutional, but they have led to bigger government, larger deficits and a weaker economy. Mitt is in a unique position, with the right background and experience, to further Utah’s ability to responsibly unlock our vast reserves of energy, lessen our dependence on foreign oil, create jobs, and allow for recreation. His Utah ties give him a unique perspective and understanding of our state’s ability to lead on the issues most important to us. As we move forward in this election year, I cannot stress to you enough the value to Utah of having a sure ally like Mitt Romney in the White House. When Mitt is elected, Utah will stand a better chance, with this powerful partnership, of returning control of our lands to Utahns themselves. This election could very well be the most important of our lifetimes. I hope that you will join me in supporting Mitt Romney for President. With his leadership and our commitment to conservative ideals, we will be well-equipped to fight for Utah’s values.

The SLC Trib report cites booking documents for Swallow detailing the charges. Swallow faces felony bribery charges, making false statements, misusing public monies and evidence tampering. The charges against Shurtleff have yet to be released. However, sources in Utah state the charges may be related to the bribery case of Marc Sessions Jenson

If you said these words to a conservative they would smile and think of Barack Obama. Actually, this person is Dinesh D’souza the once high and mighty evangelical conservative who sought to bring down President Obama. D’Souza failed for the same reasons there hasn’t been a GOP president since Bush. He failed because unlike the Progressives, D’Souza lives in a purity vacuum whose standards cannot be maintained in the real world. D’Souza wanted to have an affair but entangled in the draconian rules of Evangelical Christianity, he felt that he had to place a veneer of value on his relationship with Denise Odie Joseph II by introducing her as his fiancee.

I could care less if conservatives want to commit adultery or not, I am not their judge. However, I do have a really big problem with people who espouse the values of moral purity and wish to tear down those who simply want the same freedoms as everyone else in the freest nation on Terra. These people, those like D’Souza who we all know with the most recent news of his indictment on campaign fraud charges places him that pantheon of fake moralists and ethical psychopaths along with Anne Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Andrew Breitbart all of whom have their many flaws overlooked by a seething white conservative base that knows nothing of compassion and lives only to feed their hatred of “the Other.”

CONSERVATIVES ARE LIARS

I know the headline here seems a bit harsh, but when millions of people believe lies and repeat them despite having been given the Truth then they are liars. Mark Noonan over at Blog4Victory has stood on his Catholic faith time and time again saying that he doesn’t want to be associated with liars and people who perpetuate lies yet he continues to associate with Amazona who writes this in comments to the most recent post of 10 January 2014, posted by tiredoflibbs:

“Barack Obama was steeped in contempt and even loathing for the United States from birth, from both sides of his family and from his involvement with people like Davis. These early influences have shown through the mantle of American Patriot he had to assume, at least to some limited extent, to be able to run for office in this country. It has been seen in his speeches, in his Crotch Salute during the playing of the national anthem, in his disparaging comments and his Apology Tour, in his pandering to the enemies of the United States and his lack of respect for our allies.”

What appears in bold type there has been passed around in the conservative blogosphere for nearly five years. This “crotch salute” was a lie then and it is a lie now. The effort I applied to find the Truth in this matter took me only eight seconds of searching and less than a minute of reading. For those conservatives who say I am blinded by “Obama worship syndrome” or some other nonsensical fiction, they need only see the other verification that Obama in the photo in question was standing while Hail to the Chief played, which means had he saluted he would have been saluting himself, by simply doing a Google search.

hindsight 2283
In Hindsight
The visceral need for conservatives need to make this man, who only has one difference from the other 43 presidents who came before him, into the Devil himself, is appalling. No matter their insistence that they are not racists, their bigotry seethes out in other ways whether that be that he is their nostalgic wish to go back to the days of the Cold War and have a communist enemy to fight or looking into modern times to make him a part of the Muslim apostasy that caught America with their pants down on 11 September 2001. Despite their loud and continuing cries this man belong to neither of these groups and I still hold that history will bear out that Barack Hussein Obama is one of the greatest Presidents of the United States of all time.

VOX POPULI: CONSERVATIVES TAKE AN END OF YEAR CHANCE TO VENT THEIR ANGER AND THREATEN PRESIDENT OBAMA AT BREITBART

Posted in BIGOTRY, BREITBART, CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, CONSERVATIVE INCITEMENT TO VIOLENCE, THE CONSIGLIERI, VULCA with tags , , , on 29/12/2013 by consigliereciucava

Thoeressamt

I must say my admiration of the President of the United States grows by the day. President Barack Obama, a true Human Being, is made of far more stern stuff than I. The vile comments, the unbridled hatred and the foul mouth bigotry that is spewed at him on the Internet every day would be enough to wear down any lesser being. Speaking only for myself and not for my entire species I know that I would crumble under just a few days of the pressure that he swims in with grace and intellect 24 hours a day seven days a week.

The conservative bigots at Breitbart however see America and Terra quite differently. The long for the days when America [read white men} controlled the world. I would be the first to admit the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy ring loud and true today in America as compared to when the average TEA Partier was 20 years old, “The world is very different now.” Back in that time the mid 1970s some social change had been made but as Reagan entered office in 1981 there was a collective sigh of relief on the Right. The times were still economically tough, but Democrats in the Congress worked with Reagan to pull America out of the economic mess of the post Nixon, Ford, and Carter administrations. No such thing has happened during Obama’s tenure in the White House. The GOP, hijacked by the TEA Party has become an Enemy of the White House as they are allied against the President on every several issue.

The reason for this is that the far Right feels that the loud voices who call for America to “go back to the Constitution” were put off by both Romney and before him McCain. What is really true is the GOP is no longer a viable national party because a full third of them, those with TEA Party/Koch Brothers alliances have to cater to a rabid minority of 25 million voters who believe thing like you will see below which are comments made at Breitbart.com to a post made by Robert Wilde about the Obamas not attending church on 25 December 2013 while on vacation in Hawaii:

Reagan didn’t go to church, after getting elected, because of the burden it would have put upon the parishioners, with all the Secret Service agents, etc. At least that was the reason he gave. No one ought to be holding Obama to a higher standard, agreed. Old Scratch, though, doesn’t seem to mind shutting down an entire restaurant so he can eat a hamburger while all other patrons do without while he chows down–he could easily invite the chefs to prepare his burger at the White House, couldn’t he, and spare the other patrons the inconvenience? I don’t remember Reagan holding Waffle House hostage so he could belly up to a good pancake breakfast. I’m sure Barry would happily shut down an entire megachurch for Christmas prayer for himself and his nappy little brood if it gave a good photo-op for him. Reagan, like Obama, was the king of staged photo-ops. Remember that hilarious one where the Secret Service staged an assassination attempt on Reagan to boost his popularity in the polls? Obama ought to try that one, what with his poll numbers sinking to Nixonian levels and lower.

It becomes our business when a candidate for President presents himself as a practicing Christian, continues to present himself as having Christian beliefs, while behind the scenes is something totally different. As President, his beliefs are our business when we as voters are making a decision about who we want to lead this country. When that person lies to us for the sole purpose of deceiving us into believing he is something he isn’t just to get elected, then we should all be concerned.

I’ve been reading some of your insightful and grammatically correct posts, buckwheat:

“Oh yes, and I hope all the people out of work and all the people who lost their insurance vote conservative!”

What’s your point? We long ago stopped locking up mental defectives like yourself, Elmer–maybe we ought to start doing it again? I’ve heard that Obamacare has a lot of provisions for mandatory mental health care for waterheads like yourself. I have a cousin who works for the government, and he’s shown me some of the new rules for commitment. One of them is that if the subject has an atavistic fear of using proper grammar, such as apostrophes and commas, he is going to be locked up. A sure sign of mental illness, according to the new Obamacare rules. They will be coming after you soon, Elmer. My advice to you is to stop posting. Every grammatically incorrect sentence that you post is just more evidence needed for Obama and his boys to lock you up. As a conservative, I very much wish that you can just be safe in your mentally defective way, and keep hanging out in the library and such, and taking your methadone and all. But Obama is coming after you, man. Eric Holder is going to lock you up for being mentally defective. Just trying to watch out for a poor soul, that’s all. Take care, man, and when The Real Man knocks on your door, head out the fire escape.

Obummer got reelected, why does he need to go to church now. He paid his dues to Reverend Wright and made a whole lot of low information voters think he cared. He did not and does not.
Communist do not like religion as they want people to believe in the government and that all things come from the government. To believe in GOD means the people believe in a higher power, and we know Obummer thinks he is a God and there is no higher power. On Judgment Day he is in for a RUDE surprise.

…because he’s pretending to be Christian when we all know that he receives daily texts from his Imam. He’s some kind of Muslim.

As a side note, the news states that he’s being advised by SIX muslim Brotherhood members. . Do we need to know any more about this IMPOSTER and TRAITOR.

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?
